Tom Jensen Appointed to Board of Directors of Klamath River Renewal Corporation

Holland & Hart partner Tom Jensen has been appointed to serve on the Board of Directors of the Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC), a newly formed California-based non-profit organization created to oversee the removal of the Klamath River dams and restoration of the river.

By 2020, KRRC will decommission the four dams on the Klamath River and restore the river, which flows from Oregon into California, after more than a century of impoundment. The dam removal project will be the largest ever undertaken, and is intended to implement the 2016 Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement among PacifiCorp (the dams’ owner), Oregon, California, the Yurok, Karuk and Klamath Tribes, conservation groups, and fishing organizations. The KRRC will oversee the expenditure of $450 million generated from ratepayers and a California bond measure.

Jensen was appointed by the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations and the Institute for Fisheries Resources, the commercial fishing industry’s signatories to the settlement agreement.
